Jury Duty Phone Scam Spreads In Central Kentucky

A jury duty phone scam that was first reported in Woodford County, spread to Jessamine County. We have the information you need, so you don't fall for it.
A jury duty phone scam that was first reported in Woodford County, later surfaced in Jessamine County, according to the Circuit Clerk in Jessamine County.

Investigators said someone called people, claimed to be a Law Enforcement officer, told them that they missed jury duty and would be jailed unless they paid money.

Some people reported that they were asked to pay $4,000 to avoid going to jail.

People who received the bogus call said that the caller sounded authoritative and credible and that he had personal information about them like names and addresses.

The real police reminded everyone that the jury duty system didn't work that way and no legitimate Law Enforcement or Court official would ask for someone's bank or credit card information over the phone to pay a fine to stay out of jail.

If you received one of these scam calls, don't fall for it.
